(Newser) – The exploits of Nadya Suleman and her 14 kids may never make it to your television. As Time reports, the Octomom's program is being helmed by Dutch production company Eyeworks, whose European wing specializes in programs that depict Americans at their worst; its biggest hit to date has been Half Ton Mum—a look at the life of a 900-pound Texas woman who died at 29.

At this point, Eyeworks' American arm, which has produced shows such as The Biggest Loser, says it has nothing to do with Suleman's show. And even if it did, one reality producer says it's unlikely that US audiences would want to watch the show at all: "The big draw of Jon & Kate Plus 8 is the marriage. The Octomom doesn't have that."
